Koltes Plays by Bernard-Marie Koltes
Book DescriptionA second collection of plays by the legendary French contemporary playwright IN THE SOLITUDE OF COTTON FIELDS (1987) is an extraordinary duologue between two men who meet randomly on the street and who find themselves locked in a struggle between life and death; QUAI OUEST and SALLINGER are both set in America and provide extraordinarily prescient insight into America's relationship with outsiders. THE NIGHT BEFORE THE FORESTS is a soul-searching monologue addressed to an unseen audience whose identity is never fully discovered, although it is constantly in question."A creator of a mythology of the underworld, a champion of the underdog and the lone wolf, and a pioneer of a wholly new style of dramatic writing" - The Times "A classic of our time, who, since 1990, is the French author most performed abroad"- Le Monde

In the Solitude of the Cotton Fields, Paperback (September 2001)
Two men pass on the street. "Tell me what you want and I'll get you it" asks one. "Tell me what you've got and I'll tell you what I want" replies the other. What follows is a cat-and-mouse game of desire and rejection, power and humiliation as the two men negotiate a deal that will never be struck.
